This listing is for a 60-page PDF Instruction Book, and a PDF Pattern to make a 15" Waldorf doll. Upon purchase, all files can be instantly downloaded!

The pattern for this baby doll was designed with much attention to detail, and with the belief that it would be possible for even a beginner to successfully make their own doll. The book is full of everything you need to know in order to create a sweet cloth baby doll... comprehensive and detailed, step-by-step instructions, including over 300 illustrative photos. The doll is entirely made with natural materials, which are friendly for children and the earth.

I have designed this baby doll to look and feel as much like a real baby as possible:
➛ Just the right amount of chunkiness to mimic a real baby's dimpled thighs and chubby arms
➛ Sweetly curved limbs that nestle wonderfully in children's arms
➛ A bottom that allows the baby to sit and be cloth diapered
➛ An option for weighting the doll, to make her feel even more real and to give a therapeutic grounding to the child who holds her (the options for weighting include both the feet and/or the body of the doll)
➛ A soft, crocheted cap of mohair yarn hair, with an option for adding longer hair
➛ A simple embroidered face that allows the full imagination of the child to be expressed when the child plays with the doll
➛ Cotton knit skin, and natural wool stuffing that absorbs both the familiar scents of home and the warmth of the child as they play together

I hope that the process of sewing this doll brings you joy, comfort, and a steady sense of accomplishment with the completion of each step. I have tried to thoroughly explain each step of the instructions, and have included many, many photos along the way so that even beginners may successfully make a doll. Please remember, as you are making the doll, that there is great beauty in imperfection, and no matter what, the doll will be imbued with the love and spirit of its maker, you!

The book is divided into six parts:
1. Dollmaking materials and supplies; 2. The pattern; 3. Forming the head; 4. Sewing and stuffing the body; 5. Embroidering the face; 6. Making the hair

In my shop, there is also available a full range of patterns for clothing and accessories, designed specifically for this baby doll, and also instantly downloadable! Everything from diapers and leggings to pants, dresses and bonnets, so your baby can be the best dressed baby in town!

♥ Thank you for looking! ♥

If anything, my toys are designed to stimulate the natural desire of children to love, nurture, cherish and play richly and imaginatively.
When I was designing this doll, I imagined a child enthralled with a new baby sibling, and wanting her own baby to hold, rock, feed, clothe, nurture and care for, and so I designed this doll just for her/him!

I adore this pattern! I’ve been sewing little dolls and fairies since I was a child, but this was my first time sewing a full sized Waldorf doll and the pattern and instructions were amazing so easy to follow! Two girlfriends and I all made our first dolls together at the same time so we could share progress and support, it was so fun. And I think she came out beautifully :)

I just finished making two dolls with this pattern and it was such a breeze! It was thorough and very very easy to understand. I am so thankful for the pictures to go along with the instructions. The pattern is also super versatile, making the doll easily customizable. It is my first time making a waldorf inspired doll, so I didn't push my limits, but this pattern made me want to make more. I never got frustrated. I just purchased the 12 outfit patterns and I am so excited to put the finishing touches on this doll. I will be back with pictures!

This was my first doll-making experience and the instructions were incredibly easy to follow. Detailed, color pictures of each step help illustrate the process for beginners. There are tips along the way to help you avoid pitfalls that might impact the quality of the doll. This was my first time learning to crochet and the wig-making tutorial helped me pick it up immediately. I could not be happier with the way my first doll turned out, and it was my 2 yr old daughter's favorite Christmas present!

our 2.5 year old Loves this baby doll. So much like baby sister but not so delicate. And indeed, baby doll wears NB size clothes and diapers. Love the pattern! Thank you. Clear instructions & great photos make it look pretty straight forward to construct the waldorf doll from scratch. It really helped make gathering supplies to have the list included in pdf. Cheers!
